Thanks for supporting fundraiser

Print Article

On Thursday, Sept. 19, a dedicated group of friends held a fundraiser for Mark Dundas at Glacier Guides/Montana Raft in West Glacier. We had learned that Mark was facing a battle with leukemia. We were as shocked as he was, since he’s one of the strongest, healthiest people we know. The event was amazingly successful which was directly attributable to the generous nature of the Flathead Valley community.

Because everything was donated for auction or raffle, we had no overhead costs. Every dollar raised was direct support for Mark. Our business community deserves a round of applause for their support. We’d like to recognize and thank local businesses for providing items to auction, or food and beverages for the attendees who numbered well over 300. Thank you to Glacier Guides/Montana Raft, Friends of Flathead Avalanche Center, Last Chair Kitchen and Bar and all of our local breweries. Many other businesses, too many to list in this letter, were also donors. Please see our blog site for the full list: markdundas.home.blog.

Many private individuals provided items to auction or raffle, including their creations as artists, craftsman, painters, knitters, potters and more. The Belton Blues Band provided great music and auctioneer Mark Vessar created a fun live auction.

Our support for Mark will continue until he’s back on his skis climbing up mountains to dig pits for avalanche analysis. You can still donate by visiting Go Fund Me, and enter his name in search.
